I have written a text of about 80k words on the subject of tabletop board game design. I am looking for a developmental editing pass to address issues like overall structure and balance of the text. Does the overall message of the book come through, does the structure support that message, is the text too repetitive, is it at an appropriate level of abstraction or does it go too deep into the weeds, is the flow of the text good, is it engaging, etc.?
There is likely not very much market demand for this book, and so my budget is quite restrictive. In addition to a bid on the project, I'd be happy to receive estimates for what lower levels of investment could deliver.
Please state familiarity with tabletop gaming (if any), and previous work on non-fiction "semi-technical" books like this.
A sample from the first chapter is attached.
